LIVING / FAMILY ROOMS

BEFORE

We are just getting ready to dismantle this room. New furniture has been ordered and new window coverings.

AFTER

Two shades of a color were painted on the walls. New wood blinds and side panels add richness to the windows. The hardwood floors have been refinished and the new furniture was selected for comfort and style in this family room.

BEFORE

This upstairs bedroom was to become a cozy den, but what about overnight guests?

AFTER

The walls were painted a slate grey, and the red and cream color scheme made this a cozy and modern TV room. Her guests love the comfort of this sofa bed with it's Beauty Rest mattress.

BEFORE

A new home in a new city and not a stick of furniture came with her.

AFTER

Her only request: black, cream and grey. I tossed in fushia pink. She wasn't sure when I recommended it and now she loves it. Just the diva finishing touch she wanted.

The window was directly on a busy street.

We dressed the window with honeycomb shades for privacy and energy efficiency, then framed the window with drapery panels on the most exquisite diva rod.

BEFORE

A clean slate and a client who wants simplicity.

AFTER

We started with a color palette of sand with a hint of brown, black and blue in the furniture. The windows were dressed with Silhouettes; the perfect choice for their simplicity.

BEFORE

The guys are busy taking down the old draperies, setting up the furniture and hanging the new drapery.

AFTER

n this family room, comfort was key and style a must. The chocolate brown velor sofa, surrounded by cream linen and kiwi green really makes this room a perfect retreat with a little color added for fun.

BEFORE

Who says you shouldn't paint out wood?

AFTER

The fireplace now takes on a subtle yet prominent place in this room. This picture was taken during the holidays to showcase the fireplace and Christmas tree combo.

BEFORE

A tired look but a great room and a great client ready for a complete change. She choose the fabrics and colors from a room she saw on this web site.

AFTER

The deep sand colored walls, the cream and black fabrics and the wide crown molding around the room complete the new sophisticated look. The side panels are on black rods and the crystal finials add the finishing touch.

BEFORE

Our client enjoys a traditional formal living room, but as you can see it was ready for a re-make.

AFTER

Keeping the same basic style, we added a hardwood floor and the new sofa was covered in an Italian upholstery fabric. Both antique chairs were completely restored and reupholstered. The full wall of silk draperies are truly exquisite.

BEFORE

A new home with so much potential.

AFTER

The client wanted a Mission approach to his new home. The leather furniture complies with this style as do the oak coffee and end tables. Woven blinds, wooden vases and large art work pull it all together.

BEFORE

A new home, a simple transitional décor requested.

AFTER

n a neutral palette inspired by nature we chose a deep straw color for the sofa and chair, a mixture of straw, brown, copper and gold in the swivel chairs and the tables are a dark walnut brown. Accessories are minimal and tastefully done.

BEFORE

This family room was no longer functioning for the home owners. They wanted a more cozy retreat.

AFTER

The fawn colored walls, the blue sofa, the streamlined coffee, end tables and lamps did the job. The art work behind the sofa pulled all the colors together.

BEFORE

The low antique sofa was lost on this wall, the picture too high and the draperies, over whelming.

AFTER

We placed a fireplace on this wall and flanked it with two Better Homes and Gardens parson chairs. The window treatment was simplified with Silhouette shades and side panels. We kept the elegance she wanted and updated the look.

BEFORE

I loved the shape of the fireplace and wanted to choose colors that would accent the stone and draw attention to this area.

AFTER

The stone had a coral hue and so the chair fabric has a small raised coral floral on a deep gold background. The gold hue is also the color on the walls.

Another view of this room. Time for a new look!

Now the deep coral color gets center stage. Note the art work behind the open wall space, on the stairwell. This pictures is perfect for this space.

BEFORE

This family room was almost there. Have a look at our additions to the room.

AFTER

We added bookcases and some unique accessory pieces. A fresh coat of paint, interesting wall art, and a poem across the top of the wall - completed the look.

This is the same family room from a different view.

We added 2 tall pictures above the sofa and new window treatments. The addition of the accessories brought it all together.

BEFORE

This is such a lovely room. It just needed some finishing touches.

AFTER

We added mini cornices and very full side panels that puddle on the floor. The two new chairs in the window are a better choice than the loveseat. It was repositioned to another location within the room.

BEFORE

This bay window sitting area has always been a favourite for our client. It too, got a new look.

AFTER

The bergere chairs were painted a high gloss black and upholstered in a large motif. Less drapery fabric and more concentration on the bay window created a beautiful sitting area.

BEFORE

This warm inviting living room was getting dated. Our client wanted a fresh transitional look.

AFTER

Cream, taupe, black and a hint of fushia created the transformation. The area rug was the perfect choice for this color scheme and the sectional sofa is from one of our great Canadian suppliers.

BEFORE

The room was small, bulky looking, and in need of new furniture and window treatments.

AFTER

The solution was not to have less furniture but to cozy up the space by creating a conversation area and bring attention to the bay window with drapery panels that compliment the furniture.

BEFORE

This living room was a real treat to work with. It really just needed a new paint color, great furniture and window treatments.

AFTER

Isn't this better! Silhouette blinds, silk side panels and upholstered cornices begin the elegant transformation. The 2 full sofas on either side of the fireplace are great for conversations and fireside reading. No they aren't identical but the color scheme created with the leather and 2 fabrics used on the sofa and long ottoman work perfectly together.

BEFORE

Truly a Victorian kind of room. The dark interior of this room was once inviting but our clients tastes have changed and so she was ready for a big change.

AFTER

We started with a fresh new color, the existing cornices were reupholstered, Hunter Douglas Revel 2" blinds were used and a few new furniture pieces were added. The result was light and wonderful and totally updated.

BEFORE

This house addition was intended to be a movie viewing and games room. It is visible from other areas in her home and so she wanted a splash of elegance.

AFTER

Great leather furniture, 2 warm cozy chairs and a big view TV create a theatre feel. The 2 games tables on either side add to the family fun. We covered the windows with Pirouette Blinds from Hunter Douglas and our stylized toppers are the touch of elegance.


How basic: red-black-white! How interesting! The sectional sofa is away from the wall, below the window is a low bookcase and original art work is showcased.

This living room has an updated look with shutters and side panels. The monochromatic color scheme works perfectly and allows the dark antique furniture to take centre stage.

You don't need to push your furniture against the wall. This is so much more interesting. We placed the sofa toward the centre of the room and created a conversation nook with the 2 chairs by the window.

This is the other side of the room. The second sofa is placed more toward the middle of the room. The exquisite Austin Gallery sculpture was placed on top of an antique table behind the sofa. Silhouettes and silk draperies complete the picture.



Taupe and Blue, an old favourite , creates a calm and inviting living room. The faux roman under the side panels adds elegance and style to the room.

The couple in this house love color and so the kiwi green and aqua were love at first sight for them. Although we have lots of vibrant colors, they work so well together that the room is still calm. We love the color blocking where we placed their original art work.



With a fabulous outdoor all we wanted to do was frame the view. To do this we applied drapery finials to the wall, pleated and button holed the drapery and hung them from the finials. Her furnishings and accessories all pulled together to give this couple an inviting and cozy living room.
